Fundoo Professor: The Hedonic Treadmill


Recommended Posts



The hedonic treadmill, also known as hedonic adaptation, is the observed tendency of humans to

quickly return to a relatively stable level of happiness despite major positive or negative events or life

changes. According to this theory, as a person makes more money, expectations and desires rise in

tandem, which results in no permanent gain in happiness.
